Barry Wiener (Ph.D., CUNY Graduate Center, 2014) is the author of Ralph Shapey and the Search for a New Concept of Musical Continuity (forthcoming, Peter Lang). His articles, “The Battle over Sibelius” and “Dahlhaus’s Paradigm and Sibelius Reception,” are included in forthcoming essay collections about Sibelius. In 2008, he co-edited the Ralph Shapey special issue of Contemporary Music Review (CMR 27, nos. 4/5, August/October 2008). Wiener worked with Ursula Mamlok from 1998 to 2012, assisting her in the preparation of many scores for publication, lecturing about her music, and writing liner notes for six CDs on CRI and Bridge Records. Barry Wiener studied piano at the Juilliard School with Irwin Freundlich and Ilona Kabos, and also studied piano privately with Gilbert Levine, a student of Hans Weisse and Alexander Siloti. In addition to his work on Stefan Wolpe and his pupils, his current research concerns include the religious contexts for Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorios, and the compositional models for the First Symphony of Brahms.
